  1. Program monitoring for clinical practice : specimen positivity across urine collection methods.

    Article - En anglais

    Urinalysis is a primary component of methadone programming.

    A clinic-based study was conducted to determine whether unsupervised urine collection is as reliable as other methods for detecting unauthorized drug use among methadone treatment clients.

    Drug positivity rates compared over a 30-week period revealed no significant differences as a function of collection method.

    Results confirm the efficacy of unsupervised urine collection using a heat sensitive strip or temperature indicator.

    Study findings also offer evidence to support clinical practice designed to ensure client privacy and dignity while maintaining standards for effective program monitoring.
